Ever since my Grandma had a pair of butterflies hanging on her wall that she had brought home from a church mission I have been a fan of them. Also one of my first dates with the boyfriend/husband was to a butterfly not only are they beautiful in decor but very sentimental to me. I know so tender...hand me a tissue. Actually the only one that needed a tissue was probably husband because he still didn't get the kiss even after trying to lure me in by taking me to such an exhibit. I think he should give the butterfly exhibit another try though...ya never know what could happen these days.

there's a pair of shoes in that first picture--the greyish ones with the bright orange flowers--that I don't think I'm going to be able to get out of my head for a long time! And I just found your blog, and seriously cannot believe you have twins & triplets--that is crazy and incredible! Definitely following you now and excited to read about your adventures :)

i have that same butterfly from picture two!

i was fascinated to learn how they are raised and what an impact they make on the south american farmers who are employed to work at butterfly farms. beautiful in so many ways.

I too love butterflies :) And a butterfly exhibit, what a fun date!
So I've been following your blog for a while now. I have an etsy shop I just opened this month, and I made just made a treasury today. Ha, although I don't know you in person, when I was finished with it it reminded me of you! hahaha. It just seems graceful, crisp, elegant, fresh, and bold, oh and glamorous too. Just like all of your blog posts, and design posts are. I thought I'd leave you this message and the link just for fun :)

Have a great day!!
